Need some Design for the Soul?
These stylish tables are composed of a reclaimed marble slab and supported by a simple, sturdy frame.
They're the output of design firm Salvatori coming together with Milanese designer Piero Lissoni and Food For Soul, the non-profit organisation founded by chef Massimo Bottura and Lara Gilmore to promote sustainability and zero waste.
The project is an organic extension to Piero Lissoni’s Lost Stones collection, which was first introduced by Salvatori in 2019.
As with the Lost Stones project, the table uses the Japanese art of Kintsugi, normally used to repair broken ceramics, to join fragmented pieces of stone with a gold seam – celebrating, rather than concealing, the stone’s unique history.
What's more, the collaboration will support Food for Soul in its mission to serve nutritious meals using food that would otherwise be thrown away.
Available in round or rectangular formats, the tables will be found at Food for Soul's seven 'Refettorios' projects around the world in Milan, Rio de Janeiro, Modena, Bologna, London, Paris, Naples and soon Mérida.
Tuscan-based company Salvatori will also donate three per cent of each purchase of a Design for Soul table to Food for Soul.
